Disparate studies do not reveal the "total national character "of the Jew. The fact is that the Jews do not constitute an homogeneous group. They belong to different social
classes with different educations, origins and religious groupings. They live in geographical areas ranging from the highly concentrated population in New York City to a small town in the Middle West and thus have different types of stresses impinging upon them and affecting their psychological adjustment.
